It Was Inevitable: Frozen Costumes Confirmed For LBP

If you’re fully immersed in the expansive LittleBigPlanet world and you’re a “Frozen” fan, we’ve got good news.

As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog, characters from Disney’s smash animated hit are headed to LBP.

The Frozen Costume Pack lets you transform Sackboy into one of several characters from the movie, including Elsa, Anna and Kristoff. You can purchase each costume individually for only $1.99 or you can snag the whole package for $5.99. The latter option includes all the costumes along with a bonus costume for the kooky snowman, Olaf. You can’t buy his costume separately, by the way.

Additionally, Sony has released a free Winter Creator Kit that gives you a ton of “creative goodies” that will help you design your virtual winter wonderlands. If the weather outside is frightful, stay inside and turn that frightful weather into a lovely on-screen presentation!

Unity "Patch 4" Ready To Go, Weighs In At A Hefty 6.7GB

Well, that wasn’t much of a delay.

Not long after Ubisoft announced the delay of Assassin’s Creed Unity‘s “Patch 4,” they’ve revealed that it’s now available.

That’s really only 48 hours late, so it’s nothing to get in a twist about. This massive patch weighs in at 6.7GB because the developers actually had to replace entire portions of the Paris map; specifically, those that faced frame rate issues:

“Part of the team’s effort to enhance frame rate for players involves replacing and updating portions of the Paris city map where we are seeing issues. This explains the large size of this title update (6.7 GB). However, since a large portion of the patch replaces existing files the net increase to the game’s overall size will be less than 6.7 GB.”

The patch addresses a huge number of issues beyond frame rate: Crashes, navigation, connectivity, matchmaking, etc. If you’ve experienced problems when playing Unity, you’ll probably want to download this update immediately. It will make for smoother and less frustrating experience, that’s for sure.

Rumor: PS4 Overall Sales And Black Friday Haul Rumored

It’s always questionable when the source isn’t official, but it’s an update on Black Friday sales and the current console war, so it’s worth discussing.

According to VGChartz, the PlayStation 4 hit a couple new milestones during Black Friday week.

Firstly, they claim that Sony’s new console has sold over 16 million units worldwide and over 60 million games since the system’s launch last year. Furthermore, sales for the week ending November 29, 2014 came in at 1,193,346, which isn’t bad. Given the holiday rush, it’s not impossible that PS4 will hit 20 million before the year is out, although it won’t have the benefit of any super hot exclusive software.

Now, there may be some problems with these figures. Many argue that the overall global total is higher (perhaps already closing in on 19 million) but we need the official word from Sony before we condemn. It’ll be interesting to see how much Xbox One can cut into PS4′s lead after Microsoft finally won a month at retail (November).

Homefront: The Revolution Preview: The War At Our Doorstep

More Game Info (Print This Article)

 

 

Scheduled release date:

TBA 2015

Publisher:

Deep Silver

Developer:

Crytek

Number Of Players:

TBA

Genre:

FPS

Release Date:

TBA 2015

Homefront was one of those games with a fantastic premise and lofty ambitions, but it didn’t quite coalesce into an impressive, next-level achievement. In other words, despite its inherent entertainment and general level of quality, it was a missed opportunity. Now, developer Crytek is looking to elevate the franchise and they’re pulling out all the stops. For instance, as this is a story about an occupied United States, did you know they’ve tapped “Red Dawn” author John Milius to assist with the script? That’s only the beginning, as Crytek seeks to build on just about every element implemented by original developer Kaos Studios.

Crytek will team up with Deep Silver to deliver Homefront: The Revolution, an open-world shooter with a variety of different post-apocalyptic aspects. Here, we already have a distinct difference, as the first title was very linear. By giving players more freedom in occupied Philadelphia, the designers hope to amp up the immersion and involvement. We’ll play as resistance fighter Ethan Brady as he embarks on a dangerous quest to become America’s next radicalized patriot. Brady is a strong dude but he’s hardly invincible; in other words, this won’t play like Crytek’s Crysis series.

No wacky nanosuit here. Instead, it’s a gritty, chaotic atmosphere and the protagonist is simply a relatively healthy, physically capable man just trying to survive. You can’t approach the game as you would other FPSs; you have to be more cautious and strategic. Chances are, if you’re severely outnumbered, you’re going down hard. Not only are you fighting a superior force in terms of numbers, you also have to deal with superior weaponry and technology. Sure, you might be able to get your hands on some of it but until then, you had best tread lightly. And if you see an opportunity to inflict lots of pain and damage without incurring the wrath of the whole army, you should take it.

In addition to what we assume will be a longer campaign, the new effort will offer four-player online co-op, which is a hugely beneficial inclusion. We’re not sure yet if Crytek is planning other multiplayer modes but for now, we’re happy with the online co-op. The Korean People’s Army (KPA) have invaded and if you don’t get some help, you might feel a little overwhelmed. Then again, because you’ll have a more sandbox structure, you can play shadow games and embrace the lone wolf approach, if you prefer. Just don’t forget that your open-world experiences can be subject to player interference, ala Watch Dogs.

One way you’ll record your progress is by the accumulation of Uprising Points. These are earned by simply rebelling against that massive occupying force, and it could include destroying a security camera, protecting a civilian, or simply mowing down a large opposing force. The tools at Brady’s disposal include bolt cutters and a smartphone; the latter device can be used for reconnaissance, as you can identify objectives and various obstacles. FPS fans will be familiar with the weapon wheel and they’ll also appreciate weapon customization (adding silencers, for instance), so this is definitely a blend of FPS and action/adventure.

Homefront: The Revolution is set to launch some time next year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Provided we get a longer and more dynamic campaign along with worthwhile multiplayer, it could end up being one of the most impressive and atmospheric titles of 2015.

The Big 2014 Delay That Bugs You Most

2014 may be remembered as the Year of the Delay.

For the most part, I don’t complain. There are always plenty of great games to play and unless you’ve got an absurd amount of time on your hands, you can’t hope to keep up.

Everyone’s backlog is pretty hefty right about now, so even big delays don’t bug me. The games will show up eventually and besides, we want the developers to get it right. That being said, some die-hard gamers can react really badly to delays, especially when it’s for a game they desperately want. If there was one delay in 2014 that annoyed you above all others, which was it?

Even though it wasn’t exactly official, we all thought The Order: 1886 would launch at the end of the year, but that didn’t happen. And because it’s obviously a ways off, even now, that may not go over well with anticipatory gamers. Then there’s the loss of Turtle Rock Studios’ promising shooter, Evolve, and another hot shooter, Battlefield: Hardline. Perhaps the biggest losses for 2014 were The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (just recently delayed again until May) and Batman: Arkham Knight (June). One of those might’ve ticked you off…

Speak up! Rant and rave, it’s okay.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Coming To PS4, Xbox One, PC In 2016

Sniper aficionados, pay attention.

CI Games (Lords of the Fallen) has announced that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is now “deep in development” and it’s coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in the first half of 2016.

The series has already proven successful, as the first two installments sold over 5.5 million copies. The sequel was a step in the right direction but the franchise still needs a lot more polish and upgrading, which is precisely what CI Games should deliver. They’re calling this their “first AAA production effort” and CEO Mark Tyminski says they’re “fully committed to creating a AAA franchise that gamers can rely on for the ultimate first-person sniper experience.”

The setting will be a modern-day war in Eastern Europe and the gameplay will obviously focus on long-range precision. However, there will be a chance to execute close-up melee attacks if the situation calls for it. As for the structure, the developers are going to offer a “non-linear, sandbox-style,” which will be very different from the very linear adventure in Ghost Warrior 2.
